Careers in Focus Panel

The Careers in Focus Panel on Jobs in Editorial and Publishing was held at 1 Pace Plaza on Wednesday, March 13.  The room was packed and everyone was excited to attend.  I’ve been to similar events before, but the energy at the Careers in Focus panel was different, more alive, somehow, than a sedate professional meeting.  Perhaps the hopeful energy of my fellow students was contagious: the panelists candidly expressed their individual reasons for their love of the publishing industry, which I hadn’t experienced until that point. They were so happy to explore all the options for us as students about to enter the workplace.  Most panels for industry professionals are more business oriented, so it was refreshing to see a more human side to the people who are ultimately making the decisions to hire us or not—and that there is someone at the receiving end of online job applications rather than a giant black hole in cyberspace.

 

Here is a list of the panelists and the key points they discussed:

 

Becca Worthington, the Project Coordinator from AAP, the Association of the American Publishers, served as the moderator of the panel.  Her main message to students was to network with industry professionals.  Perhaps the best way for all of us to do that is by joining literacy outreach programs with groups such as the Young to Publishing Group.

Joy Bertan, a Director of Staffing at Simon & Schuster, suggested adding the genres you like to read in the Skills and Interest section of your resume.  She also suggested that publishing is more of a one-track minded industry: once you pick editorial or production, for example, chances are you will not have the chance to switch later in your career.  Therefore, pick wisely and know what you want or run the risk of being pigeonholed.

 

Michael Mejias, Director of Internship Program at Writer’s House, a literary agency, that represents powerhouse names such as Nora Roberts, disagreed. He suggested that the publishing industry is more flexible and that, in the beginning it is more important to become associated with a publishing house than attempting to streamline your skillset too soon.

 

Brittany Davis, an HR representative from O Magazine advised students to speak up during their internships.  It’s a challenge to do so since everyone is so busy, but if you don’t speak up your supervisors won’t be able to help you.  She assured the rom that they truly want to help us. Most of the time they will go out of their way to help you once you express your interests.

 

Finally, Carolyn Zimatore, a Talent Acquisition Manager at HarperCollins, reminded students to dress appropriately when going to an interview. And always, always, always follow up, perhaps even with old-fashioned, handwritten notes. Usually, it’s best to send both a thank-you e-mail and a traditional card or note if you really want to make an impression.

 

The panelists also discussed what makes individual candidates stand out from the thousands—the average entry-level editorial job posting receives about 1,000 responses in 12 hours—of other applicants. While the finer details were debated, the conclusive agreement was the passion and knowledge an interviewee shows are what sets him or her apart from the rest; however, at the end of the day, it’s also about fit: do your passions and interests complement the imprint you’re interviewing for?

To sum up: dress appropriately, know what you want, and follow up. Click here to read the event flyer for more information!
